Have you tried resetting to plan defaults? Otherwise a teamviewer session may solve this quicker

Next up trying to figure out why my desktop doesn't go to sleep :)
Did you put in a Kvittel with Reb Google already?

Try going through the list here.

IINM, fonts don't depend on Word, rather they are part of Windows, in a folder called Fonts. You should be able to go on your old computer and copy the specific fonts you want and drop them into the Fonts folder on the new computer.

My old computer died, can't get anything from it.
Anywhere else to get them ?

Will these work?

They were uploaded for Kindles, but I wonder if they are the same fonts as PCs use.

If you open the .ttf or .otf file, there should be an Install button you can click
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I don't know you can try playing with the settings, did you check your BIOS settings? Also does it matter which port you plug the dock into?
Okay so I switched the dock to another usb port, and it worked fine for like 2 weeks. And then stopped behaving :(

In the last two weeks? Nothing aside from whatever windows update did (not Win11).

Btw. Where would I find that folder ! I tried searching for it in my new computer but only found fonts under settings.
